    does anyone know what tube this is?
    ID about 9mm/0.35
    Outer diameter 17mm/0.67
    thinkness 4mm/0.16

    and more important: where to find it :)

    (it comes from a commercialy available big slingshot for arborists)

    With that size, it looks like speargun tubing/bands (spearfishing). I'm not exactly sure where to find it, but I'm sure an online search for speargun tubing would turn something up. I have a slingshot attachment for use as a sling bow, it came with some very powerful black bands that were noted to be speargun bands. They are smaller in diameter than what you have there, but I believe they are available in many sizes.

    This tube is ....strong.
    163,3mm² of rubber is a lot.
    Exactly twice as strong as thera tube silver (81,6mm²)
    Megarubber got one called scale with 145mm² (4,8 / 14,4)

    If it's twice as strong as TTS I'd love to see the guy who can draw it. TTS is plenty strong enough for me !

    I'd love to see the original slingshot too

    it'a a 2 man job :p and the pouch slides over the pole on a one-direction slider (hope this is clear, I don't speak Englisch that good) with a release

    this is the fork, the pole is about 2,5 meters

    We also wield double bladed axes.
    When it's "bring your wife to work day" we have to drag the wives by the hair the whole day.

    On the ground that's pretty easy, but when starting to climb they scream a lot...
    Very distracting :mad:
